Regularly invited to perform on 'France Musique', the Yendo Quartet has rapidly become known for its strong identity. United by a common musical ideology from the quartet's multiple European origins, was born a project to adapt for their formation the 'Danzas españolas' for piano by Enrique Granados.

In parallel the quartet commissioned a new work from Argentinian composer Luis Naón, a series of dances that can be played alongside those of Granados. A co-commission of Radio France, the premiere of 'Tangos Utopicos' took place in October 2015 on Radio France during Anne Montaron’s broadcast 'Alla Brève'. The project was presented for the first time integrally at L’Hotel de Soubise, Paris for the association 'Jeunes talents' in February 2016 and finalised by a studio recording in December of the same year.

After several performances at the 'Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris', Yendo interpreted Phillipe Geiss’s concerto 'United colors of saxophone' at the Joseph Kosma auditorium, Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Nice with the city of Nice Wind Orchestra. In June 2015 the quartet was awarded 2nd prize at the International saxophone quartet competition in Strasbourg, SaxOpen. Following this they performed notably at the festivals of Vigan, Moissac, La Baule and d’Aulnay as well as in Alsace at Domain Gross. Their performance in Gaëlle Le Gallic’s broadcast on France Musique in September 2015 allowed them to continue there collaboration with virtuoso jazz-man Baptiste Hérbin, realising a 'crossover' mixing romantic music with improvisation.

Currently completing a masters in chamber music at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, the quartet study with David Walter.
